airlines crash in san francisco. the ntsb now saying the pilots aboard the 777 relied on automatic equipment to maintain air speed and they didn't realize the plane was flying too slowly until it was just 200 feet above the ground. investigators have completed their initial interviews with the flight crew, including the training captain instructing the pilot at the controls. unfortunately the first time the captain -- first trip as the instructor. first trip together. the ntsb says the evacuation procedures are also under scrutiny. but you think the planes are controlled by computers but you need to know how to control the computer and the instructor had never been -- >> instructing, first time. and the guy -- >> and the computer system at sfo out. it seems to me, if i'm the faa, one of the rules i want to put in place is -- >> not have them all at the same time. >> if you shut down a computer system at a major airport -- >> don't have new guys doing it -- >> they put out a bulletin. >> that's the first time i thought, listening to that, we haven't even considered the possibility t

, we know that the ntsb go team has been working all night working through the night continuing to work today looking at that burned out fuselage that's broken apart that's what's left of asiana flight 214. they've got the black boxes now back in washington. they flew them there overnight. they're going to be looking and analyzing the data in there, the performance of the plane, listen to the cockpit conversations, to what the pilots were saying when this all was happening. essentially trying to find out what happened, why this plane came in essentially too slow, too low, the tail hitting the seawall separating the san francisco bay from the airport and the runway and then slamming on to the runway and skidding down and lost the tail assembly, it lost landing gear before skidding off the runway. we also know this morning that the two victims, the two people killed in this crash are 16-year-old girls from china. they were part of one of two school groups from chinese middle schools who were coming here for summer camp which included visits to some of the college campuses here in the nort
fidelity. now get 200 free trades when you open an account. >> the ntsb is just revealing a more detailed time line now to the events leading up to saturday's crash of asiana flight 214 into san francisco. phil, what can you tell us. >> look how quickly it was slowing down, almost stalling as it was coming in to land. the auto pilot was disengaged. 500 feet the air speed was 134 knots. 137 is the minimum target speed for landing. three seconds before impact, the air speed was all the way down to 103. they should have been at 137. they were down at 103 nots. here's the chairman talking about what they're looking to find from the pilot's interviews. >> we want to make sure we understand what was happening but we also want to talk to them about whether they were hand flying the airplane, the whether the auto pilot was on, what reliance they had within the cockpit and how well they understood the automation and what it was supposed to do. >> they are looking into the training and the experience of the pilot in charge of the controls. interviews of those pilots will happen later today. the pil
and getting his initial operating experience in the 777. >> that was the ntsb's deborah hersman. the plane was flying far slower than it should have been. joining me is robert haguer, a former nbc correspondent who spent years covering airline accidents. robe robert, let's cut to the quick here. why was this plane traveling so, as it turned out, fatally slowly? >> that's the $64,000 question. that's what investigators have got to try to find out. it's incredible, the slow speed. the target, the speed that they're supposed to slow down to just before touchdown was 157 miles an hour. now translating that, some might have heard it in knots but i like the miles an hour. 157 is what they're supposed to be going at touchdown, minimum speed. already that plane had got that slow a half minute out from the runway. why they let it get that slow, they let it slow down then for another 30 seconds after it reached that speed, got down to less than 120 miles an hour. so imagine this great big 777 aircraft, big, heavy aircraft like that, going 120 miles an hour. it's inevitable it was going to stall. >>

and go on until it completed. >> reporter: ntsb chairman debra hersman said no faulty equipment is detected which fuels more speculation the pilots made a mistake. >> dan, one of the pilots said he saw a bright flash. any indication what that might have been? >> reporter: that's something that came up yesterday where the pilot reported seeing a bright light and led to speculation he was temporary blinded. hersman wanted to set the record straight and said he was not blinded and this may have been a reflection from the sun. he could see the controls quite clearly and this appears to be a non-issue. >> appreciate. thanks. >>> randy is here with the "360 bulletin". >>> venezuela is waiting for an answer from edward snowden. venezuela is yet to receive a response on the offer of asylum made last week. >>> the last killing by the boston strange ler may soon be solved. investigators got dna from a nephew of albert desalvo. his body will be exhumed for a final dna match. >>> stocks hit another record high today. the dow jones rose 169 points to close at 15,460 that broke the former rec
see unlike what the ntsb speculated just yesterday. claudia cowan has the latest for us from san francisco tonight. these 911 calls, you know, we were led to believe that they were -- had 200 plus first responders on the scene like right away. these calls make it sound like they were all alone out there. >> well, you are right, shepard, that's what we were told about those 225 first responders arriving on scene within minutes, not so. according to passengers who have, we have heard, have began calling 911 right away. wondering where the help was. in fact, one passenger telling local news media he waited 40 minutes for paramedics to arrive. now the san francisco fire department is in defense mode saying that passengers might not have seen responding ambulances because they were apparently dispatched to a staging area and initially kept their distance out of concern the plane might explode. meantime federal investigators have wrapped things up here at the airport. they are sending some pieces of the plane back to agency headquarters for further analysis. >> it's a big structure, it

the visual approach. the ntsb says the asiana pilot complained of a bright light that temporarily blinded him at about 500 feet in the air before the crash. what might that flash have been? >> well, the pilot also indicated that it may have just been a reflection from the sun. whatever it was, it was brief. and i don't think that that would have been the problem. i think the problem was that they lost their scan. the most important thing any pilot learns s in the very beginning is that air speed is absolute paramont. you have to keep total awareness of air speed. it got the behind the aircraft and they set themselves up for that. >> thanks for your insight. very good information. we do appreciate it. >> my pleasure. >>> that wraps up this hour of "weekends with alex witt" join us at noon for another edition. smart political talk up with steve kornacki and at 10:00 a.m. eastern it's melissa harris-perry. more special... with fancy feast mornings. mornings are delicious protein-rich entrées... with garden veggies and egg. each one perfectly designed... to start her day with a little love. fan

this investigation with the ntsb coming to assist as an accredited representative. the boeing folks are already on the ground. they're going to find out, i believe, what happened here but the good news at least for boeing if there's any silver lining in it right now is that it doesn't appear to be anything to do with the battery. however, they're going to be looking to make sure that is the fact. the batteries are located much lower in the aircraft quite close to the wing in the rear and then also some in the front as well near the cockpit. the fire actually appeared on the crown up near the tail on the top of the skiff. >> so, mark if it's not the batteries, it's obviously something else. in some ways that could be worse for boeing no? >> well the engineers are back to their seven-day-a-week and the experts are. they're going the find out exactly what happened here and then fix it. >> right. officials have publicly said that evidence suggests this is not because of the batteries. you had the asiana crash, u another 787 that was headed to florida from the uk and had to
